  1. No, not fair. He hasn’t even been in office a year. Geez. There are no quick fixes to America’s woes.

  2. Every President has their critics…….i’m done trying to defend Obama to people who are just against him just because……let them say what they want I think he’s doing a great job.

  3. we’ve become a nation of quick fixes that does not remember that destruction can take a second but building takes forever.

    the man does deserve criticism, but he does not deserve to be our devil. He’s had eight months. If I recall, Bush was on vacation at this point in his tenure, Obama is working to try to pass a health care reform bill that I do not agree with. At least he’s trying.

  4. It hasnt even been a year, some of us need to stop acting like spoiled brats!!!

  5. Ok, everything WILL NOT happen over night!! I have hope always for Obama, a cover like this just embarrases me and being gay I don’t fall into this catagory of doubt on Obama! Instead of doubting, help!! Help him fix up what was screwed up!!

  6. No it’s not fair. Stupid Bush destroyed the nation and now they expect Obama to clean it up within a couple of months. It took well over a year just to clean up at start rebuilding a couple of buildings that got knocked down! I’t’s been close to 10 years and they haven’t even finished rebuilding yet! The economy is in billion dollar deficits, we’re in two wars still and people are loosing jobs left and right , but Obama’s supposed to clean that up in 8 months? GTFOOHWTBS! I’m tired of people making him look like a fraud or something. He TOLD us that it would take a while, maybe another term (8 years combined for those who are oblivious to the elective term system) so why are they stating that he hasnt done anything? As far as I know, he’s been acting on all that he promised, but it’s the stupid senate and congress and redneck repugs that sideswipe and deter him from acheving all that he wants to do! They WANT to make him look like a fraud because they want to prove that we should of never voted for a Black man as president! Sad to say, but that’s what it all boils down to. They could give a flying f$&k what Bush did…why? Because he DIDN’T CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE!!! All he cared about is getting himself and them more rich and helping out the already fortunate.

  7. AGWMS or Angry Gay White Male Syndrome. The symptoms include complaining about everything while not giving a damn about everyone else. They really dropped the ball on Prop 8. It’s their fault. They didn’t include the Asian, Black, Latino communities (people of COLOUR), but turned around blamed them for the reason why they failed.

    AIDS research/outreach center dollars in the black and latino is like seeing Elvis riding a bike with little Michael in a basket up front (PURE FANTASY). Where is this money? It’s not going where it is really needed. I believe in equally rights for everyone, but I also know bullsh*t when I see it. And this is pure bull.

  8. Obama…….. is more Destructive………. in 5 months than Bush was in 8 years…. Good Gawd!

  9. I’m just glad to see a definitively left-wing group NOT worshipping him. I guess it means they don’t have their heads up their asses as much as I thought.

  10. Of course it’s fair and that’s politics for you, they promise all sorts and never deliver. It would be same story if the other guys had got in..
    Obama needs a kick up the arse!
    The UK is the same, the apathy is such that a lot of people don’t even bother voting, in fact no one needed to with Gord Brown, the public seemed to happily accept the move
    It doesn’t matter who gets in the end results are the same. Ziltch!

  11. U know I just don’t get the people here!!! Do they not realize that Bush had 8 YEARS screwing up this country!!!! Obama is still just a man not a freakin MIRACLE WORKER!!! NO ONE would be able the fix the mess that Bush created this quickly! Give the man some damn time to fix 8 years worth of mistakes!!!!! REALLY people???? Are u serious??? It’s common sense!! Grrrrrrr…..this gets me so mad!

  12. Is it fair? No.
    It took someone a reign of 8 years to get our country into the dire straits we are in and we now expect President Obama to make it all better in 8 months?

  13. ouch..
